DENVER, CO — On the final day of their legislative session, the Colorado legislature made history Wednesday by passing the first bills nationwide to establish a regulated marijuana market for adults.  The legislature was charged with doing so when voters approved the marijuana legalization Amendment 64 last November.

In addition to passing and sending to the governor a bill to regulate the recreational cannabis market in Colorado, the legislature also passed a bill to establish what will become the first tax ever collected on commercial sales of marijuana purchased for recreational use in the United States.

Two other bills were passed by the legislature this week relating to marijuana: one that would establish a driving impairment standard, and another which treats marijuana magazines, such as High Times and Nuggs, as pornography, requiring them to be kept behind the counter at retail stores.
